A tribute to the life and works of Walter Swan

This website has been created in memory of Walter Swan (1954 – 2014) by his immediate family: Niccola, Laurie and Finlay. Our aim is both to share his writing and to publicise the work being carried out by the Walter Swan Trust – the charity that has been established in his name to encourage new creative writing.


Walt was passionate about writing and encouraging others to be creative, which he did throughout his life and particularly through his teaching and directing. He wrote poetry, plays, screenplays, short stories and also wrote regular articles as a freelance journalist. He also began work on two novels and has three published non-fiction books. He was naturally very collaborative and often wrote with others; his most recent writing partner was Yvette Huddleston, with whom Walter worked for a number of years.
